Playing in all-white kits, the Gunners delivered a toothless performance that left Arsenal mad Morgan fuming.

Taking to Twitter during the game, Morgan wrote: “Can someone please tell Arsenal’s players that playing in white shirts doesn’t mean we have to play as badly as Spurs?”

Morgan’s tirade continued after the full time whistle, as he added: “Dressed like Tottenham. Played like Tottenham. Dreadful performance.”

Lewis Grabban’s goal seven minutes from time saw the hosts claim a famous win and dump the 14-time FA Cup winners out of the competition.

And despite Morgan slamming Arsenal for a Spurs-esque performance, it’s the white side of North London that will take to the field in the next round of the competition.

The FA Cup fourth round draw this afternoon pulled Spurs out to host Brighton in the fourth round.

Meanwhile Forest were rewarded for today’s win with a home tie against East Midlands rivals Leicester.

Arsenal wore all white shirts for the game at the City Ground today in a stand against knife crime.

The bespoke kits kicked off the club’s ‘No More Red’ campaign against youth violence in London.

Megastar actor Idris Elba and club legend Ian Wright are onboard as mentors in the programme.

Elba said: “From the time young people leave school, until the time they’re at home with family, there is often a void, a dangerous spike of nothing to do, where nothing can easily turn to something dangerous. 

“If there continues to be no options for this after-school period, we will always see gangs form. Let’s create options for these young people.”

Wright added: “Every young person deserves the opportunity to express themselves. The opportunity to exist within a safe environment. The opportunity to live free from fear of violence. 

“We can never accept loss of life through youth violence as ‘normal’ in our city and it’s so important that we all work together to create a better environment for young people.

“By giving young people more places to play sport, more support, and access to individuals who can inspire them, together we can help make a difference to young people in London.”
